HAVE FUN WITH THE KIDS FOR SUMMER VACATION
The summer is a time when families can enjoy spending time with each other. It is often easier to plan things because most kids don’t have to go to school five days per week. For parents who are divorced, the child custody schedule might limit what they can do during these months. One thing that must happen is that you need to adopt a positive attitude so that you are able to make the most of the days you do have with the children.
Your parenting plan is the first place you need to look when you are going to start making plans for the summer. You can review what days you will have the children, and get a reminder of any limitations that you need to follow while you have them. For some parents, this can include geographical restrictions that can cut down on the number of places you can go.
One thing that you can’t forget is that there are probably many local attractions and activities that you and the kids can enjoy. Because you are close to them, you won’t have to plan travel time into the itinerary. We know that there are often certain activities that you and your children might enjoy, so try to take advantage of these.
Unfortunately, there are times when the parenting plan terms might not still fit the child’s needs. If this occurs, you will need to pursue a modification so that your child can have what is in their best interests. You and your ex might be able to agree on these points, but asking the court to step in is sometimes necessary.
